The dream comes true!

Have you always dreamed of putting on the mythical pointe shoes and pirouette as if there was no tomorrow? The time has come! For this ballet lesson, you need to purchase pointe shoes (we recommend Rossetti!). You can also take your first class in socks just to see if you’re ready before committing. You need experience in ballet prior to taking the pointe class, and be sure to take technical classes at the same time.

The class is divided into two segments: we start with 30 minutes of barre, including warm-up, strengthening and technical work on pointe. Then, intermediate level people join the center for more advanced exercises, while beginners continue their work at the barre, do strengthening or stretching, or even participate in the center without the pointe shoes. This way, we can give appropriate attention to each of our dancers of all levels 🙂

Warning! The teachers will make the participants take off their pointe shoes if they feel that their technique does not allow them to be safe.

  • 30 minutes beginner barre

  • 15 minutes intermediate centerwork

  • Classical music

  • All levels welcome!

You need to feel comfy and fierce. Leggings and a tank top, leotard and tights, whatever floats your boat. You need a pair of pointe shoes (ideally custom-fitted at Rossetti) and the gel pads to put in them (do NOT purchase the neoprene ones!). Also useful, a reusable water bottle and a hairtie!

Sure, this class is made so that everyone can join in anytime! We recommend that you have prior ballet experience before going en pointe.
